Natalie's Score: 93/100

A lovely German white wine made from the country's classic grape Riesling. Just enough residual sugar to balance the vibrancy of the acidity. A perfect match for Asian dishes and curries.

Riesling Kabinett food pairings: roast chicken, spicy pasta dishes, shrimp tempura, grilled salmon with lemon sauce, duck liver pate.

Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Please may I have some more? Pale lemon colour with faint familiar petrol nose but it doesn't stop there! Lemon zest, blossoms on the wind, oxidized apple, wet stone and fresh peach lend a hand in this glass. Refreshing acidity and a slight effervescence make for a lovely Rheingau Riesling outing. Food friendly indeed but Spicy Asian Fusion cuisine or fatty fried foods - no shaming allowed!
Tasted: November 2016
The Rheingau is one of Germany's smallest wine regions but is well-known the world over for its many different styles of Riesling wine. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
